In Topic: 10.9 on the Surface Pro 3

26 June 2014 - 04:05 AM

Hey, do you have a short guide of what you've done so far?


So far all I have done is trying to get the OS to install. In doing so I followed the first set of tutorials on the Surface Pro 2 thread (under the header: "Surface Pro 2 Gen Steps"). The only modifications I needed to do was to utilize the config.plist that I have posted above in place of the one the tutorial tells us to use. This got me into the installer and into the OS. 


I haven't had time to toy with anything else but as I said there isn't much left to try and fix. We need to get the Type Cover to work and iron out the graphical artifacts the screen has when in the OS. I'm thinking that the artifacts can be taken care of if we can get the right DSDT, any DSDT Modifications, as well as an adjusted conflg.plist. The type cover currently isn't working in Linux either so I'm suspecting it's due to a unsupported USB chipset. Something I'm sure that can be fixed with the right KEXT.

you can try to use a genericxhci kext to make the keyboard work...


Sadly, the two versions of the KEXT didn't work. I'll give it another go shortly.

I'm a new Surface Pro 3 owner who has tried to get Mavericks installed. I have tried both tutorials listed on the first page. The only one that has given me some success was JahStories' Surface Pro 2 tutorial. I figured that since the internals of the two devices were the same that I wouldn't have a problem with it. However, it turns out that it will not boot into the installer. It gives me a blank screen when it tries to load the install GUI. I gather this is due to the new resolution that the screen has. I'm new to Clover and have had little success modifying things in the config.plist to fix this issue.


Anyone have any suggestions on my next steps? I haven't toyed with KEXTs just yet, all I've done is try both tutorials and slightly modified the config.plist: removed edid and turned on "IntelInject".
